Great company made up of great people. Team members within IT work together to pull off the impossible. Great team work.
Slow to change, but trying to keep up with times at least.
Some departments don't always communicate with others until the last minute.

I applied online. I interviewed at Stage Stores (Houston, TX) in June 2017.
I only made it through the phone interview, although I was invited for an interview they're clearly so unorganized and inconsiderate of applicants that I decided not to go any further in the interview process. My first phone interview was scheduled and the recruiter never even called. So I emailed her saying I never received a call. She gave no explanation why and just asked to reschedule. First off if she knew she couldn't keep the appointment she should have contacted me BEFORE to reschedule. Second, had I, the applicant, done the same thing they would have immediately declined me.
So I went ahead and rescheduled. The phone interview went seemingly good and she asked me about coming in person but said she'd confirm with the team on their availability first. I said that was fine I just need at least 48 hours notice so I can request off from work (I'm already working full time). So out of the blue the evening before some other HR person send me an email saying my interview was scheduled for the next day. I emailed back asking to reschedule because I'm not able to take off work with such little notice. They tell me they'll have to get back to me next week. So they did contact me the following week but did basically the exact same thing, emailed me the day before asking me to come interview. I could see just from their recruiting process that this is a very unorganized company. It's really a shame because initially I was really excited about the job because the position would finally put me back on the career path of what I went to school for and always wanted to do. But I've had enough bad experiences with jobs that I knew the way they treat applicants from the start shows they're not a professional company to work for. If they were they'd be considerate of applicants time and wouldn't expect people to jeopardize their current job in order to interview with them. They're going to lose out on a lot of good applicants and I'd bet they have really high turn over because they probably only manage to hire people that are really desperate based on the way they treat applicants.
